Aretha Franklin performs during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival Opening Gala premiere of "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of our Lives" at Radio City Music Hall on April 19, 2017.

It has been announced that Apple has gained exclusive rights to a new documentary of the influencer, Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives.

The screening of the film, based on Davis' autobiographer, was followed by performances from Barry Manilow, Jennifer Hudson, Earth, Wind and Fire and Dionne Warwick.

Davis founded Arista Records in 1975 and J Records in 2000. The lack of exploration of Clive's personal life isn't a let down; the film is truly about the music. And this isn't being callous to what happened to Houston, but she's not the only one of Davis' artists to die (the first artist he ever signed was Janis Joplin), yet around 20 minutes of the film are spent recounting her last days - to the point I forgot who the true subject of the documentary was. "I am honored to have been an artist of his and to still be an artist of his", Franklin said from the stage at Radio City Music Hall. Davis earned a loud cheer from the audience when he started dancing.

Meghan Markle finally accepted by the family of Prince Harry
Markle, on the other hand, has been an advocate of charities and activism even before Prince Harry came to her life. On Thursday, the Suits star was spotted wearing a ring with a "H" on it, seemingly in honor of her royal beau.

"Where is Clive at?" she yelled. She also called her longtime collaborator a "chieftain" and "humanitarian".

From 1967 to 1973, Davis was the president of Columbia Records.

Said Ford, "It is a great honor for us to be working with Apple Music on the worldwide distribution of SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, and it's ideal positioning for a movie that chronicles the career of one of the music industry's icons over the past 50 years". "I was born in Brooklyn and didn't get to Manhattan until the age of 13, when I went to Radio City Music Hall for a friend's birthday". Tragically, Houston died on the night of Davis' 2012 pre-Grammy party, and the film explores his loss there, in the context of being orphaned in college when both of his parents died within a year of one another. The plan is to release the movie exclusively on Apple Music.

Davis is the producer behind artists such as Aretha Franklin, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, and Alicia Keys. Whoopi Goldberg worked as the emcee in between the performances.
